With a 360° hinge and optional ASUS Pen, the ExpertBook B7 Flip provides full autonomy for any working style. The device allows the user to operate in tablet or laptop mode to either write or type. The convenient tent, stand, and tablet modes provide quick communication, simple sharing of content, and efficient presentations.
Furthermore, the display’s wide 16:10 aspect ratio offers a bigger visual surface than standard 16:9 proportions, making it simpler to read articles, visit websites, and work on spreadsheets. The anti-glare touchscreen is protected by durable Corning glass to ensure long-term reliability.
ExpertBook B7 Flip features a 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor, along with 64 GB of RAM and Intel Iris Xe graphics. The performance of the up to 2 TB PCIe M.2 SSD has also been improved, with PCIe 4.0 technology expanding the bandwidth gates enabling an almost instant storage experience. The laptop also has a battery life of up to 11 hours.
The ASUS Advanced Hybrid Cooling System (AHCS) ensures that the ExpertBook B7 Flip delivers optimal performance for any activity. A third copper heat pipe, which effectively adds an extra lane to the high-speed, heat-dissipation expressway, is a key component of this design.
In addition, the fan’s aluminum plate is replaced with highly conductive copper for this edition. These combined improvements enable an increase in cooling efficiency, as well as a 2.3X increment in overall laptop performance in Whisper mode.
The ExpertBook B7 Flip supports 5G cellular data and Wi-Fi 6E technology, boosted with ASUS WiFi Master Premium, for the quickest and most dependable WiFi connections available. Bluetooth 5.2 is also available for more energy-efficient connections to other gadgets.
ASUS Private View secures sensitive information by providing screen privacy, and an LED light on the laptop cover provides an instant indicator of the user’s state. ASUS ExpertWidget boosts efficiency by enabling configurable hotkeys, which make it quick and simple to trigger important functions. Furthermore, the ASUS NumberPad is an LED-illuminated numeric keypad ideal for mathematical calculations.
A smart infrared camera integrates with Windows Hello, allowing ExpertBook B7 Flip to wake up and log in to users merely by detecting and recognizing their faces. A fingerprint sensor is also built into the power button on the laptop.
ExpertBook B7 Flip offers an integrated privacy shield that effortlessly slips over the webcam for quick seclusion, protecting personal and business information from intrusion. It also has an optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 2.0 chip, which saves passwords and encryption keys for enhanced protection, and a Kensington Nano Lock slot, which allows the laptop to be physically secured in unattended areas.
The optional Intel vPro platform establishes a structure for reducing a company’s IT department’s work and enhancing performance. Threat mitigation, identity and access protection, and data and asset protection are all built-in. The vPro platform also supports remotely-managed automatic troubleshooting and enhanced virtualization, which reduces administrative expenses while preserving data security.
The ASUS ExpertBook B7 Flip will be released in Malaysia in late July 2022, with a starting price of RM8499.
